Soccer hunk David Beckham appears on the July 2012 cover of Elle (UK) magazine, the first time a man has appeared solo on the cover. So why did Elle decide to feature Beckham so prominently?”
“David Beckham is a national hero,” said Elle Editor in Chief Lorraine Candy. “He is an icon and Elle is known for featuring icons on its cover. This is a first for us on the newsstand and I believe he is loved by men and women alike.”
Bechkam, 37, is married to Victoria Adams, aka Posh Spice of the Spice Girls. The couple has four children. In January, the ripped hunk launched his own line of underwear for H&M, a project he said he was very passionate about.
What David isn’t passionate about, apparently, is talking about himself. Elle offers this teaser:
“How would I sum myself up? I don’t know, I prefer other people to do that,” Beckham said. “Erm... a little bit shy.”
Shy? We seriously doubt that. How would you sum up David Beckham?
